Sarah is on her honey-moon with her grouchy, lug of a husband, Chuck, when she meets Alice, a woman who’s been visiting for quite some time since her husband, Claude, suffers from memory loss. When the two strike up a conversation, Alice gives Sarah a pill from Claude’s medication that will change Chuck entirely.
